Flawless In Minutes – with Laura Mercier

I’ve been a huge fan of Laura Mercier’s Flawless Face line and have been using her base products on clients and shoots for over 10 years now.

Makeup Basics at Belle & Cat Nail & Wax Studio – June 18th, 2011

It was so much fun to share makeup tricks-of-the-trade and tips with such sweet & pretty makeup fans. Thank you Ms. Mika, Ms. Camille, Ms. Martina and Ms. Ines!

The ladies brought their own makeup kits so I could see what they were using and I was pleasantly surprised to see some great products from Bobbie Brown, Shu Uemura, MAC, Urban Decay, The Body Shop, Benefit and more! They didn’t even need to use the goodies from my makeup set up, and just played with some Nars and Laura Mercier products and tools MUST-HAVES that I had suggested they add to their makeup bags.… Click here to read more
